Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Remote keyeless entry

Changed batteries in remote. when I lock the car the horn sounds,head lights flash, the red light that flashes,showing the alarm is on,on dash doesn't come. also now the doors do not lock when the car hits 15 mph,also when you turn off the engine and try to use the door lock button, on the drivers side door, the doors do not lock, or unlock. On top of that, I have sat in the drivers seat, closed the doors and then locked the doors, using the remote, and everything works. Dash "red flashing light" works.

How to set & cancel theft deterrent system or how to set & cancel security...


Theft deterrent system (on some models)

Theft deterrent system is designed to deter vehicle theft. The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn when it detects abnormalities such as follows:

• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The batter terminal is disconnected and then reconnected
• The system control is disconnected and then reconnected.
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn if someone attempts to damage or break into your car.

Setting the system

You can set the system with or without the impact sensor function. For details, see "Canceling the impact sensor" below.

1. Turn the ignition key to "LOCK" and remove it.
2. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle
3. Push the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once. At this time, the turn signal lights flashes once and the security indicator light comes on.

The system is set after 30 seconds. At this time, the security indicator light start flashing slowly.

Once the system is set, you cannot start the engine until you cancel the system.

The system will not be set in the following cases.

• When any of the door is open; security horn sounds for 1 second, close the door and set the system again.
• When the hood is open; close the hood securely.

Canceling the Impact Sensor

The impact sensor can be cancelled to prevent false alarms from being triggered incase of the following conditions:

• When parked in the noisy area
• The vehicle body or glass is subjected to a strong impact from the (such as in highly pressurized car wash).
• When transporting by a car carrier or ferry.

To cancel the impact sensor;

1. Lock the door by pushing the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once, and turn signal light flash once
2. Then push the lock (set) switch twice within 5 seconds. At this time, the turn signal flash 5 times to indicate the impact sensor function is disable.

The impact sensor is deactivated as long as the system remained armed.

Canceling the system

The system will be cancelled by the following two ways:

• Turn the ignition key from "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch

If the turn signal lights flash 3 times, the system has been alarmed. Check to see if there is any abnormality with your vehicle.

If any of the doors is not opened within 30 seconds, all doors will be automatically locked and the system will be set.

When the system is set

Activating the system; When the system detects abnormalities such as follows, it flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the turn lights only (depending on the model) and sounds the security horn and vehicle horn of 30 seconds.

• Unlocking any door without using wireless control
• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The battery terminal is disconnected and then reconnected.
• The system control assembly is disconnected and then reconnected
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

Reactivating the alarm;

Once set, the system automatically resets the alarm after the alarm stops.

The alarm will activate again under the same circumstances described in "Activating the system".

Stopping the Alarm

The alarm will be stopped by the following two ways;

• Turn the ignition key from the "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.

The system can be cancelled by these ways at the same time.

If the battery becomes discharged due to the vehicle being unused, for a long time etc., when the battery is recharged or replaced, the system will activate the alarm. If this happens, immediately unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch, and the alarm will stop.

Testing the system

1. Set the system
2. Insert a wireless remote control key into the key hole on the driver's door handle, and unlock the door.
3. Open the door, and an alarm will sound.
4. Stop the alarm by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.
5. Repeat this operation for the front passenger's door.

Good luck.

The alarm system has activated and we cannot disarm the system via the Remote Key Fob or by key at the doors or hatchback. Tried disconnecting battery same problem. When the doors open the system...


Hi Edward:
In dashboard, your THEFT warning light is blinking? If the answer is yes, your antotheft system is activated and will need restart and resynchonized. This occurs when battery is disconneting or other un-authorized key is used.

Vehicles equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) are protected from vehicle theft andunauthorized entry. VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made toenter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights andparking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

VTSS system arms when ignition is off, vehicle is exited, door is locked using power door locks and door isclosed. Alternatively a remote keyless entry transmitter can be used to arm system. A security light on panelwill flash for 15 seconds to indicate system is arming. At the end of 15 seconds, if no door, hood or tailgate isopened, system is armed.

If alarm is triggered, horn will sound for 3 minutes, and lights will flash for an additional 15 minutes. If hornsounds 3 times when either front door is unlocked, vehicle has been tampered with (tamper alert). If doors arelocked manually or with key, system will not arm (manual override). If an unauthorized entry does occur, VTSSsystem signals Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to prevent vehicle from being driven. PCM reduces injectorpulse width to zero, causing a start and stall condition.

System can be disarmed with the keyless entry transmitter, or by using key to enter vehicle. In both instances, if alarm was activated, vehicle alarm will be terminated. If battery is disconnected and reconnected, alarm will beactivated and it will be necessary to disarm system as indicated.

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do


holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is bad.to see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.

I have a 2000 pontiac trans am. when i set my alarm my haedlight pop up. they never use to. replaced module,and headlight motors,still didn't fix it.


In your owners manual on pages 2-19 and 2-21 tells you how to change this.

Entering Programming Mode
1. Turn the ignition key to RUN, then to OFF. This will
disarm the content theft-deterrent/alarm system
(if equipped).
2. Remove the RADIO fuse. This fuse is located in the
main fuse block which is located on the left side of
your instrument panel. The radio fuse is on the lower
right-hand corner of your instrument panel. See
"Fuses and Circuit Breakers" in the Index.
3. Turn the ignition key from OFF to RUN three times
quickly (within five seconds). The vehicle will
respond by locking the doors, unlocking the driver's
door and releasing the hatch. Your transmitter is now
ready to match the vehicle. Leave the ignition
in RUN.
4. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on
the first transmitter for 15 seconds. The vehicle will
respond as in Step 3.
5. Repeat Step 4 for the remaining transmitters.
6. When you have finished matching all of your
transmitters, replace the RADIO fuse.
7. Check that all transmitters work by pressing
the buttons.

Programmable Modes
Your vehicle can be programmed to one of the
following modes:
Mode 1: All Off (The headlamps will not flash and the
horn will not sound to provide you feedback that a
lock/unlock command has been received by the remote
keyless entry transmitter.)
Mode 2: Horn and Lamps/Lamps (Your horn will sound
briefly and your parking lamps will flash when you
press LOCK on the remote keyless entry transmitter.
Only your parking lamps will flash when you press
UNLOCK.)
Mode 3: Horn and Lamps (Your horn will sound briefly
and your parking lamps will flash every time you push
LOCK or UNLOCK.)
Mode 4: Lamps (Your parking lamps will flash every
time you press LOCK or UNLOCK.)
Mode 5: Lamps/Horn and Lamps/Lamps (Your lamps
will flash upon the first press on LOCK, your lamps will
flash and your horn will sound upon the second press
on LOCK and your lamps will flash upon any press
on UNLOCK.)
Vehicles are delivered programmed in Mode 5.
To change the mode, do the following:
1. Press the UNLOCK button on the remote keyless
entry transmitter.
2. Count the number of chimes you hear. The number
of chimes tells you which mode your vehicle is
set for.
3. Press the UNLOCK button, again, on the remote
keyless entry transmitter until you hear the number
of chimes that correspond to the mode selection
you want.
The mode you selected is now set. You can either exit
the programming mode by following the instructions
later in this section or program the next feature available
on your vehicle.

When programming is complete, turn the ignition to
OFF and reinstall the RADIO fuse.
